Some of the common areas included are the upper lip, chin, and brows. Our team of skilled professionals can help patients achieve a smoother face with more uniformed, shapely brows. Scheduling a consultation at our Lake Oswego, OR office is the next step to achieving a hairless, more enhanced facial appearance.

"Dr. Petroff was the most humble, amazing doctor I have ever met. I would recommend him and his team to anyone looking to have a medical procedure done. I have never felt so comfortable with a medical team, where I knew from the beginning that this is the place I 100% want to have my surgery done at. Every single person I met there was friendly, organized, and very professional. He is an amazing doctor that has an incredible gift and he has a whole team that makes his practice so ideal."- K. / Healthgrades / Jul 20, 2018

"I recently had a BBL treatment with Whitney. What a wonderful experience. First of all, the environment was immaculate. I didn’t feel any anxiety concerning the COVID-19 issues. Secondly, this treatment made my complexion look ten years younger. It is absolutely amazing. This is my second, 3 treatment, round of BBL. I came back to make my complexion look even better. The only negative on BBL is it is a little uncomfortable while you are being zapped. It is tolerable."- P.M. / Solutionreach / Jun 18, 2020
"Great experience as always!"- C.B. / Solutionreach / Jun 18, 2020
What to Expect with Waxing
A waxing treatment will involve our licensed aesthetician applying hot wax to cloth strips. The strips will then be administered to the areas that are being treated. The aesthetician will quickly tug on the cloth to remove the hair at the follicle. If the eyebrows are being waxed, the patient can consult beforehand on the desired shape and outcome. Some pain and redness may result, but it will subside shortly. Some patients may wish to combine their brow waxing with brow tinting as well, which can be performed simultaneously.
Waxing Anticipated Results
Patients can expect their treated area to have little to no hair after being waxed. Depending on the patient and hair texture, results will vary. Typically, patients can expect to have smooth skin for 3 - 4 weeks. After the hair growth is long enough, patients can schedule another waxing appointment.
